Why Earn an MS in Nursing from SUNY Downstate?
Every community—urban or rural, wealthy or not—deserves quality healthcare. At SUNY
Downstate, diversity is a driving force: We believe nursing needs to reflect the communities
we serve. More than 70 percent of our nursing students are members of minority groups.
SUNY Downstate is the only academic medical center in Brooklyn. As a nursing student,
you'll collaborate with other experts: physicians at University Hospital, practitioners
from our School of Health Professions and researchers seeking breakthroughs at our
School of Graduate Studies. Those opportunities, and access to our 8-bed Simulation
Center, will give you new insights into the field—and the tools to narrow gaps in
health care that are too common.

view of the entire healthcare system. You'll build leadership experience, as well

of Nursing. Graduates will be qualified to sit for their respective certification
